CAN Kicks As Nigeria Plans To Join Muslim War Alliance

by on December 17, 2015

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has protested the attempt by the Buhari led Federal Government to covertly enlist Nigeria among Muslim Nations to fight ISIS.  Saudi Arabia was building a coalition of 34 Muslim/Arab countries to fight ISIS and Nigeria was named among the 34.

General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake, in a statement said: “This singular gesture of the Buhari government betrays so much, and tends to confirm our fears that underneath everything this government is doing, there is an agenda with strong Islamic undertones, aimed at undermining Nigeria’s pluralistic character and neutrality regarding government’s affiliation to any one religion”.

“While joining hands with other countries to fight ISIS is something good, our country must not be tagged as a Muslim or Arab nation. Christians must make a public statement showing their discontent on this development which portends great danger to national unity and integration.”

Apart from Nigeria, other countries are: Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Chad, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Gabon, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Pakistan, the Palestinians, Qatar, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Togo, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

Iraq, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan are not in the coalition.

    My biggest disappointment is with these Christian challatants parading themselves as prophets and general overseers and only see revelations for politicians / political events . Now that it is time to hear their voices on serious treath to the body of Christ in Nigeria , their spirituality fades and cowardice illuminate their souls.
    I said it before and am saying it again if they choose to be cowards and Silent on this matter, may they forever remain silent and cursed to doom and gloom forever cause God will raise a voice for the church in Nigeria.
    As for me , I say cursed be the souls that gather for the secret attempt to undermine the church in Nigeria . Yes, may their gathering which is not of God become a snare in their lives!!
    May what they wish for the Christians in Nigeria be their portion .
    I place a curse of confusion and failure on that list and decree that that coalition remain dead and shall never hold untill Nigeruas name is removed from it list .

    This is a very important point as we are beginning to see Iran mingling in Nigeria’s internal issue. Nigeria is a secular state and should remain so. The Muslim countries should not take advantage of the fact that we have a Muslim president to tag Nigeria a Muslim country.
